1. What is your favorite shark and why?
My Husband and my favorite shark is the tiger shark! These sharks are not only beautiful, they also seem to have individual personalities, which is why, they would be one we would love to dive with. Emma, the 15 foot tiger shark who lives in The Bahamas, is also the inspiration of our book series "Professor Clark, the Science Shark."

2. What inspired Professor Clark the Science Shark?
My husband & I were inspired to write Professor Clark because there are no species in the ocean that needs our help more than sharks. We wanted our book to be based on science, and I wanted children to be able to connect with my stories to help them develop empathy for these misunderstood creatures.
3. What is one thing you wish everyone knew about sharks?
We wish more people would educate themselves on the importance of healthy shark populations in our oceans, and how they need to be viewed for what they really are, essential and fascinating animals vital to our ecosystem. Not as the media usually falsely portrays them.
